Abstract [en]

The aero-acoustic response of a T-junction subjected to different combinations of grazing and bias flow is well represented by a quasi-steady model based on incompressible pressure loss coefficients. The pressure loss coefficients are readily available for many geometries in standard handbooks, but could also be determined experimentally or by computational fluid dynamics. In this study the choice of turbulence model in the simulations is discussed. Three common models: k-ε, k-ω and k-ω SST, are tested against handbook data. Results for the pressure loss coefficients are presented as well as the derived acoustic results. Although rather poor agreement between the simulations and handbook data for the pressure loss coefficient the derived acoustic results are of sufficient quality for practical engineering use.
